Word Stress in Sentences Casual

U Sounds: Casual Word Stress in Sentences

Here we will practice the same sentences, but more casually. When speaking this way, you will use less stress, pause less often and let the words flow together more. 

When you see “same,” this means that there are no extra points of casual English in the sentence. In other sentences, the extra points are shown. New points in this lesson are:

Who = oo (can drop the H sound when it’s mid-sentence)
about executives = aboud’executives
help people = helpeople (speak the P one time)
Way to influence = way d’ influence (to is between vowels)
